The Department is now seeking views on these changes. There has also been an independent review of the planning system, which was undertaken following a Resolution of Tynwald.

|Good Trader Scheme||O.F.T||Good Trader Scheme|
As part of its contribution towards the overall strategic vision of the Isle of Man Government, the Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading (‘OFT’) has developed proposals for a Good Trader Scheme (‘GTS’). The aim of the GTS is to help the Island’s consumers avoid falling prey to cowboy builders and other rogue traders by promoting reputable traders whilst providing assurance and protection for those consumers.
Consumers often ask the OFT to provide details of reputable traders and we believe that the GTS will enable us to do this and thereby improve confidence levels when consumers need to find a trader they can trust to supply goods or services. It is envisaged that the GTS will first consider applications from traders in the home improvements sector with an extension to traders selling and/or repairing motor vehicles being likely thereafter. Further categories of traders will then be considered as required.
